"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."
~Psalm 127:1

Making space

Writing is one of my passions.  Unfortunately, I've been neglecting it this year.  It's the thing that I do that makes me feel closest to God.  I've been using my loss of the use of our laptop as an excuse to not keep up my blog.  The truth is, I can write anywhere and on whatever instrument I have (I've actually taken to carrying a notebook around at all times, but I forget to use it often).   I don't always need to add photos to my posts, although I love to because I love to take photos.  Short and simple is often better.

I so wanted to participate in the 31 day blogging challenge again this October, but I felt like I ran out of time with Josiah's sister, Kristen, getting married right at the end of September.  And since I'm such a last minute person these days I didn't start thinking about what I wanted to write about until 2 days after the wedding (I was so exhausted to think about much the day after), which was the last day in September.  So instead of rushing it and feeling trapped into writing something that I haven't thought through thoroughly (how do you like that alliteration 😊 ) I just want to focus on writing again.  I do have things to say, I just need to make space in my days and weeks to sit down and put something on the computer.  And I need to do more of what I love and what makes me feel closer to God.

So, here we go, challenge accepted... making some space in my life to write again.
